Iranian Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani downplayed the Zionist regime’s war rhetoric against Tehran, saying Israeli talk of Iran attack shows its stupidity.
“That the Zionist regime raises the issue of attacking Iran is a big folly of the regime,” Amoli Larijani said in a gathering in the Northwestern city of Urumiyeh on Wednesday.
“Iran is the country of lions and no country dares to attack Iran,” he added.
In relevant remarks on Friday, Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan stressed that Israel’s warmongering remarks against Iran indicated Tehran’s political success.
Reacting to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s anti-Iran remarks at the UN General Assembly in New York, the Iranian minister said that their anger pleased Iran because it was an indicative of the country’s powerful presence in the international arenas.
On the possibility of a military aggression on Iran by the Zionist regime, Dehqan said that Israel is much weaker to take such a measure.
Also, last Wednesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani slammed Netanyahu for his desperate efforts to prevent rapprochement between Tehran and Washington, and said Netanyahu’s furious and bold words can just please Iran.
“That an aggressive regime in the region names Iran with coarse language is the cause of our happiness,” Rouhani told reporters after a cabinet meeting in Tehran.
“Israel is upset to see that its sword has gone blunt and Iran grows more powerful day by day,” he added.
